CSE researchers are making substantial contributions to their field
MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (12/05/2022)—Four College of Science and Engineering faculty were recently named among the most "Highly Cited Researchers" in the world: R. Lawrence Edwards, Dan Knights, Tony Low, and Donald Truhlar.
The international list, released by Clarivate Analytics in late 2022, recognizes researchers whose citation records place them in the top 1 percent of citation counts for their field in multiple highly cited papers over the last decade. High citation counts demonstrate that a researcher’s work has been frequently referenced by their peers and suggests that they have a significant and broad influence in their field.
R. Lawrence Edwards, a Regents and Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, was listed among the most cited researchers in the field of geosciences. His expertise lies in climate history, climate change, and geochronology. Edwards is an isotope geochemist renowned for his role in developing modern uranium-thorium (or Th-230) dating methods and his application of these methods to the study of climate history and ocean chemistry.
